About Circle Craft Christmas Market:

More than 300 artisans from coast to coast! Vancouver’s Circle Craft Christmas Market has been a local tradition since 1973. For 38 years, generations of Vancouverites, British Columbians, as well as tourists from near and far have been enjoying the Market, a place where they come face to face with fine BC and Canadian artisans and their work. Exhibitors include wood turners, glass blowers, sculptors and potters, clothing and jewellery designers, toy makers, leather and metal workers, and more. In addition, to round out the experience, visitors will find food vendors, entertainment by local dance groups, craft technique demonstrations, and other activities.

The Circle Craft Christmas Market attracts some 40,000 people eager to discover the creations of hundreds of Canadian artisans all of whom are jury-selected based on talent and diversity. This November, more artisans than ever, over 300 (many of whom are new to the Market!), will present their wares.

The Market offers additional special sights and artistic surprises for attendees and fun activities for families to enjoy:

Watch artists produce their work – Enjoy live pottery throwing, weaving, and woodturning demonstrations!

Totally Amazing Glass – Take in free glassblowing demonstrations by some of Canada’s top glass artists. Visit the display of gallery work located next to the stage.

Ballz of Fire Workshop – Try your hand at designing and creating a blown glass Christmas ornament.

The Entertainment Stage where fantastic local talent will shine, including youth community dance and music groups!

Student Art Exhibition – Circle Craft presents, for the sixth year, an exciting exhibit celebrating student creativity. Each secondary school featured offers a display of a wide variety of student artwork reflecting the quality and diversity of their visual arts programs. This show offers a snapshot of the many styles and media art students are practicing. Explorations in drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, collage, photography, woodworking, and felting will be on view. This exhibition is presented by Circle Craft Cooperative.

Great Prizes will be won. Since its inception in 1993, The Sharing Tree has become an integral part of the Circle Craft Christmas Market. A $2 charitable donation enters you to win a prize valued at $1,500. All proceeds go to charity.
